This Elderberry Recipe is an alternative to traditional Balsamic Vinegar. Robin says it is "Deep, rich and beautifully smooth and it goes extremely well as a salad dressing. It can also be used as a 'hot toddy' to ward off the Winter sniffles.
Ingredients
  • 400g ripe Elderberries, stripped off stalks and washed
  • 500ml of organic red wine vinegar
  • 700g of organic cane sugar
Method
  1. Put Elderberries in a bowl and pound lightly with the end of a rolling pin.
  2. Pour over the red wine vinegar and cover with muslin. Leave for 7 days.
  3. Strain through a fine sieve and pour the liquid into a stainless steel saucepan.
  4. Add the sugar and warm gently until dissolved. Keep stirring so the sugar doesn't burn or start to caramelise. Then bring to a rolling boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Now pour into sterilised bottles and cap. Make sure you use a cork or plastic topped caps otherwise they will corrode due to the vinegar.
  6. Makes 600ml.
